Seoul thanks Tokyo for helping girl with leukemia return home from India

Mainichi reported on Saturday that ROK Foreign Minister Kang sent a letter to Foreign Minister Motegi on Friday voicing appreciation for Japan’s support for transporting to Seoul via Tokyo a five-year-old South Korean girl who was diagnosed with acute leukemia in India and was unable to return home due to travel restrictions amid the coronavirus outbreak there. The GOJ reportedly secured seats for the girl and her family on a flight that was arranged to bring Japanese citizens home from India. The top ROK diplomat reportedly said in the letter that Japan’s assistance symbolized mutual cooperation in spite of difficult bilateral relations.
